The horror ‘Men‘ (Firestarter), new film from the acclaimed filmmaker Alex Garland (Ex Machina), received a high age rating (R), and can only be watched by adults.
The film was rated by the MPA simply for “violent and disturbing content, graphic nudity, macabre imagery and language”.
Check out the trailer:
A A24 released, so far, a rather vague synopsis of the film, without revealing much about it, as is usual for the studio: “After a personal tragedy, Harper (Jessie Buckley) decides to go alone to a retreat in the middle of a beautiful English countryside, hoping to find a place to heal. But someone or something from the surrounding forest seems to be chasing her. What starts as seething dread becomes a nightmare, inhabited by your darkest memories and fears.”.
With little information revealed, it is known that the production revolves around a young woman who travels alone to the countryside of England after the death of her ex-husband.
The Oscar nominee Jessie Buckley (‘The Lost Daughter’, ‘I’m Thinking of Ending Everything’) stars in the feature film alongside Rory Kinnear (‘Penny Dreadful’, ‘Black Mirror’).
The film is produced DNA Movies (‘Extermination’) in partnership with A24, the company behind ‘The Lighthouse’, Midsommar – Evil Waits for Night’ e ‘Hereditary’.
In addition to driving, Garland also signs the script.
